Sylven New York
Founder & Creative Director

Casey Dworkin is the Founder and Creative Director of vegan and plant-based footwear brand, Sylven New York. Casey was fittingly born on Earth Day and got involved with sustainable activism from a young age as a result. Separately, her creative interests led her to pursue fashion, and she completed a degree from Drexel University in a combination of Product Design and Fashion Merchandising.

Prior to launching her own line, Dworkin spent her professional career working within small footwear and fashion companies, and attributes a lot of her early knowledge and experience to “being thrown in the deep end.” When she decided to launch a company of her own, she felt compelled to base her brand equally on craftsmanship, design, and mission – finally getting the opportunity to combine her affinities for both fashion and sustainability.
